Wok'n in Memphis
will make its Memphis debut on Sunday at Porcellino's. Its first go was in Seattle.

Wait ... what?

Wok'n's Spencer Coplan is from Seattle. He moved to Memphis a little over a year ago with his girlfriend who is a teacher with Teach for America.

Coplan's background is in fine dining. He worked for Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen. But, he says, "I've always had this love for Asian food, especially Chinese food."

We're talking the cheap, feed-the-masses Chinese food — beef broccoli, crab rangoon, orange chicken, and the like.

Coplan says his version is with "better quality ingredients, elevated but not in any way pretentious."

Sunday's dinner is $20 per person and includes an appetizer. Drinks can be purchased through Porcellino's.

Here's the menu:

Vegetable Eggrolls
Pork Dumplings
Sichuan Eggplant

Fried Brussel Sprouts with Chinese Sausage

Entrée
(select one)

General Tso’s Chicken
Beef & Broccoli
Kung Pao Shrimp
Mapo Tofu
Sweet & Sour Pork

Sides
(select one)
Steamed Rice
Veggie Lo Mein
Egg Fried Rice

Coplan says he's in the "getting off the ground" stage. He does catering and he's working on an upcoming pop up at the Cove.
